Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate and Assistant Minister for Social Services) (21:25): by leave—I move government amendments (1) to (5) on sheet EF102 revised together:

(1) Clause 2, page 2 (table items 2 to 5), omit the table items, substitute:

2. Schedule 1, Parts 1 and 3

The day after this Act receives the Royal Assent.

 

3. Schedule 1, Part 4

1 July 2017.

1 July 2017

4. Schedule 1, Part 5

The day after this Act receives the Royal Assent.

 

5. Schedule 2

The day after this Act receives the Royal Assent.

 

(2) Schedule 1, page 5 (after line 5), after item 9, insert:

9A Paragraphs 123UF(1)(g) and (2)(h)

   Omit "1 January 2016", substitute "1 July 2017".

(3) Schedule 1, item 32, page 11 (lines 7 to 9), omit paragraph 32(a), substitute:

   (a) the person's qualifying savings period ends on or before 28 December 2015; and

(4) Schedule 1, item 33, page 11 (lines 16 to 18), omit paragraph 33(a), substitute:

   (a) the person's qualifying savings period ends after the day this item commences, but on or before 31 December 2015; and

(5) Schedule 1, item 33, page 11 (lines 21 and 22), omit paragraph 33(c), substitute:

   (c) the person makes a claim, in writing, for the payment on or before the later of the following days:

      (i) 28 days after the day this item commences;

      (ii) 31 December 2015.

And for those colleagues who might be wondering about the word 'revised', we are seeking to change a 'to' to an 'and' in one of the schedules to clause 2. I say that just so that no-one thinks there is any sharp practice happening.

Question agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with amendments; report adopted.
